Tokyo Autoshow 2005


The Frankfurt Motor marks the world premiere of After CSS (Frankfurt 2003) and Triathlon Race Car (Geneva Endo is the third concept car by ED2, Toyota’s European studio – all designed within the of the Vibrant Clarity design which now underpins all Toyota

The design concept for Endo as its starting point, the city Urban areas form an difficult challenge for automotive and city planners – shortage of emissions and traffic congestion all the city less inviting but still demand personal Endo is an urban-friendly solution intends to address some of problems.

Its compact dimensions and low weight allow a better use of and low emissions, while simultaneously four passengers in comfort and additional luggage space. is short, at 3 metres long, but (1.52 m) and wide (1.69 m) to ample interior space. Its versatility and modularity provide its with solutions that improve their everyday journey.

The designers were within the ‘Vibrant Clarity’ philosophy which is enabling to take a new direction towards more animated models now and in the These models will out from the mainstream and help Toyota’s new global identity. which suggest Vibrant are and Engaging; while Clarity is by words such as Clear, and Simple.

There are four which come together to Vibrant Clarity, being clearly expressed in Endo: P – A – Architecture S – Surface S – Special The proportions of Endo are specific to its – with maximised width and the ideal urban length. the proportions are optimised for four

The architecture of Endo is clear and with the intersection of its two main the upper cabin which is in shape and the lower free-form which creates a more protective base. The surface is and tense, highlighted by the dramatic shoulder line to promote a hi-tech image. The special of Endo are in its interior versatility and technology features.

In keeping the compact philosophy, getting in and out of has been greatly improved by the use of a two-link hinge system for the doors that allows a opening in confined spaces.

this is an important factor in the design, which can be easily and closed even when in tight spaces.

The predominant of the instrument panel is the large screen that spans the width of the car. The size an unparalleled ease of use and delivers a IT image. In addition to the meters, audio, air conditioning and rear functions, this display can feature user-defined information as e-mail, internet, with individual customized settings.

The can also change the background of the screen and its illumination is reflected on the door trim, creating a interior ambience. The large roof further reinforces unique atmosphere. The width of Endo is also utilized on the allowing increased functionality. The passenger seat can be freely in four directions, front, left and right.

This movement allows for usable space next to the passenger as well as improved access to the The rear seats show functionality with back that can be rotated in several directions and it is extremely simple to the interior to the users needs, it be four seats, three with a table or two seats increased luggage space. In way, Endo can be adapted to the hectic and rapidly changing of urban families of the future.

Audi Shooting Brake

Audi is unveiling a new highlight in the compact segment at the Tokyo Show: the Shooting Brake is a study vehicle offering a trailblazing interpretation of Audi’s formal idiom, blending the dynamism of a sports car with a new of spaciousness and greater functionality. its powerful 250 bhp, 3.2-litre engine and quattro permanent drive, the Shooting Brake produces a quality of road that in every respect up to its visual impact. The study sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.0 seconds, and its top speed is electronically at 250 km/h.

As is typical of every study car, in addition to its qualities the Shooting Brake features a raft of technical for Tokyo. These include the damping system Audi ride, an evolutionary version of system plus with screen monitor and character and the new LED headlight technology.


A into a new segment: the Audi Brake Concept represents an new departure in design terms. The of this coupé, measuring m long by 1.84 m wide but just 1.35 m tall, it out unequivocally as a paragon of the latest design, yet countless innovative demonstrate how this repository of has taken a decisive evolutionary forward.

Even when seen in the mirror, the Shooting Brake reveals at first glance a end that is characterised by the striking radiator grille with horizontal slats in chrome. As on the Le Mans quattro super car study, the four-ring brand is located above the single-frame the surface of which is not interrupted by the plate surround, either.

The shape at the front – further by prominent air inlets at the sides – and the cut of the clear-glass headlights give the its decidedly forceful, dynamic A presence that echoes the front-end design of the current A4 models in the DTM and refines the visionary RSQ study. A further element from motor sport, the grille, is the aluminium diffuser, guides the airflow beneath the car precision.

Viewed side-on, and concave surfaces create a interplay of light and shadow. The lines lower down the body give the vehicle a flat look. Typically for the Audi design approach, the and dynamic line structure the of the vehicle body into a defined, sporty architecture. The of the large body panels and the window strip below the roof line are equally features of a sports car.

The contoured wheel arches the powerful, road-centred proportions. The double-spoke wheels originate quattro GmbH and are a further version of the design created for Audi’s current top sports the RS 4.

One new element in the portfolio of design is the upward swoop behind the side window. This, with the wide C-post, the prominent rear end. is where the visual emphasis of the Brake Concept is to be found: the trapezoid of the rear window and the arching, convex panel are the opposite extreme to the flat end and give the vehicle a crouched as if ready to leap.

The horizontal lights, extending well to the sides, in conjunction with the line along the lower of the window, accentuate the horizontal across the rear end of the vehicle. The compartment lid itself extends up into the roof surface. permits a wide opening and optimum access to the luggage

Beneath the flush, integral there is a large-area diffuser as at the to channel the airflow beneath the such that drag is and surface grip enhanced. The system’s two large tailpipes at the powerful engine inside the Brake Concept.

The interior

The design of the Audi Shooting Concept exudes a decidedly flair. This impression is by the low seat position, in typical car style, the high centre and the clear, expansive composition of the panel. The short sports-style lever with its tactile together with the wide in the doors and the pedals with surface, combine form and with unprecedented ergonomic

The attractive appearance of the interior and of each individual detail is the of select material quality and a finish of the highest standard.

The clearly structured surfaces of the panel, roof and door are clad in high-tech synthetic The two grey shades and the surface provide a contrasting look and On the other hand, the surface of the console, the inside door and the surrounds on the air outlets, like the itself, have an ‘Electric pearl-effect finish.

The instrument as the driver’s focus of attention, is by a semi-circular cover, an element consciously echoes the design of sporty Audi models. Two analogue circular instrument display the engine speed and speed, and the large-format display of the Information System provides information.

The multifunction steering with flattened underside is a to the wheel installed in two of the most Audi sports cars built – the

Le Mans quattro and the RS 4.

Above the centre console discreetly towards the driver, two air outlets with star-pattern bracket a chronograph that can information in either analogue or form, as preferred.

This uses an organic polymer that appreciably improves and ease of reading. Compared the conventional liquid crystal (LCD), an organic light diode (OLED) monitor is easier to read, above all the sun shining on it and when viewed at an The content displayed on the monitor can be made out from an angle of

170 degrees. Other advantages of are its shallow installation depth and short response times, as as much lower energy than LCD displays.

The MMI terminal of the DVD and navigation system plus, optical and acoustic route has been redesigned. The ergonomically architecture of keypad and display is by the successful Multi Media configuration in the Audi A8. Here, the features an array of new functions as innovative 3D screen navigation touch screen monitor and recognition that permits inputs using a PAD pen.


The Audi Shooting Concept sets new standards in the sports vehicle segment in ample space for all occupants. to the special shape of the tail there is both more for rear passengers and more in the luggage compartment. The wide angle of the rear doors and the easy entry function for the seats provide easy to the rear seats. There is an amount of knee room at the thanks to the wheelbase of 2.47 m.

The compartment of the Audi Shooting Concept is quite sufficient for substantial transport requirements, a capacity of 255 litres with the seat back upright and as as 730 litres with the seat folded down.

The steering adjustable in reach and height as as the driver’s seat with the adjustment options ensure an seating position for drivers of any build.

The ergonomic design of the seats in the Audi Shooting Concept combines ample with good lateral The shot-through textile upholstery in blue for the seat surface and back, flanked with grey hues on either provides a sporty, elegant

Engine and transmission

Powerful and – the power unit of the Shooting Concept is a transversally installed V6 engine with a displacement of 3.2 which has already thrilled thousands of customers in currently the sporty versions of the A3 and TT car lines.

The engine is equally suited to a distinctly sporty vehicle as the Shooting Brake Concept to its outstanding torque and power

Its maximum output is 184 kW (250 at 6,200 rpm, and the torque is particularly impressive, peaking at 320 Nm 2,500 and 3,000 rpm.

The basis for forceful acceleration in all ranges and fleet-footed sprints is engine in conjunction with the closely spaced 6-speed that paves the way for crisp, gearshifts.

The performance figures of the Brake Concept 3.2 are correspondingly it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in six seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 (governed).

Throttle valve is designed for an exceptionally agile, engine response to accelerator movements.

The dual-branch exhaust both helps to cut emissions and a very presentable sound. Audi’s acoustics specialists created sonorous sound in case, which, without unpleasant or even obtrusive in any way at perfectly reflects the sporting of this very special unit in acoustic terms.

The Brake Concept is equipped quattro permanent four-wheel A hydraulic multi-plate clutch the distribution of power between the and rear wheels.

This solution is indeed particularly for cars with the engine transversely, incorporating all the well-known of an Audi quattro.

Offering a situation-specific distribution of propulsive between all four wheels, drive guarantees maximum and, as a result, optimum at all times. At the same time are still ample reserves for cornering forces in the interest of safety and directional stability.

the engine at the front and the four-wheel-drive clutch at the rear, axle distribution benefits accordingly. this weight distribution is to the excellent driving stability and handling of the Audi Shooting Concept.

The chassis

The second key to its dynamics on the road is its highly suspension with McPherson layout at the front and the new four-link suspension at the rear. Large wheels with size R18 tyres promote driving fun and

The dynamic suspension is designed for agile handling with a standard of stability, and makes a distinct pleasure. An additional is the high standard of ride as befits a car in a segment further up the

The electromechanical steering with power assistance is furthermore one of the to optimum handling. It combines steering feedback with sensitivity to excitation from the surface, and operates on far less

The particular strengths of the four-link layout stem from the separation of longitudinal and transverse This provides a high of lateral rigidity in the interests of dynamics and driving safety at the same time, makes the relatively soft lengthwise in to improve the standard of ride

Separate springs and shock provide the necessary vertical The shock absorbers are fitted next to the wheels, leaving for a particularly generous through-loading in the luggage compartment. A tubular bar is secured to the axle beam by of extremely stiff rubber-to-metal it reduces body roll and has a positive influence on the amount of force that can be absorbed and on the vehicle’s handling.

An innovative is used for the shock absorbers: magnetic ride. Instead of the damper fluid, a magnetorheological is used – in other words, a whose viscosity can be influenced by an field. This effect to damping characteristic to be influenced at will by applying a voltage to the

Audi uses this to supply the correct damping in every driving situation, optimising ride comfort and behaviour. A computer equipped sensor technology determines the driving situation in a matter of The driver can choose from two programs depending on whether want to drive in a very style – in which case the fluid exhibits high – or more with the accent on comfort.

The Daihatsu Be-Go is the version of the Daihatsu D-Compact 4×4 I’ve blogged about From concept to production in a short time. The D-Compact 4X4 was at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor and months later it’s shown as a production car at the 2005 Motor Show.

The Daihatsu is a compact 4X4, and will replace the Daihatsu Terios in car line-up. That means see it on Malaysian roads one day as a Perodua to the Perodua Kembara, which was on the current Daihatsu Terios. So post should interest you quite a bit.

At first it looks like the design was from the outgoing second Toyota RAV4. But no matter, the 2nd Toyota RAV4 looks and until today it still look dated on the roads.

The Be-Go is powered by a 1.5 liter 16 valve DVVT engine. called it the “TOPAZ” engine. is a newly developed engine, seen in the Daihatsu Copen ZZ. engine makes 103hp at and 140Nm of torque at 4400rpm. The is mated to a full time 4WD with a centre differential The compact SUV has a kerb weight of

Interior looks good… a wooden trim MOMO there which I’m not sure will reach the production The meter panel design differ much from the 2nd Toyota RAV4.

The Daihatsu will go on sale in Japan and the rest of the world early year. It’s not known yet Perodua will use this as the Replacement Model. But if they do, sure to sell like here in Malaysia.][/img]
